(p.29) 3 The Apocalyptic
The Fundamentalist Mindset

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows that the apocalyptic provides a specific narrative with historical continuity. That narrative may also include a group ideology, particularly one that is paranoid. The apocalyptic indulges in dualistic thinking, violent images and a desire for the end of the world, a discourse wherein one's paranoia and rage are explained, justified and given direction. The apocalyptic provides fertile soil for the violent potentials in the fundamentalist mindset.
